Hello, all! I hope you are having a terrific Tuesday.
This week’s photo challenge comes from Tina. She has encouraged us to depict something that evokes nostalgia. For my offering, I have chosen to highlight a few photos taken at Lauriston Castle in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Last November, I wrote a post showcasing the beautiful Edwardian interior of Lauriston Castle and also included a little bit about its history. If you are interested in taking a look, you can get to it by clicking here. The photos from that post are in color, but for today’s purposes, I have had a little fun transforming a few of those photos into a more vintage look.
The castle was left to the city of Edinburgh upon the death of its last owner, Mrs. Reid, in 1926, and the interior remains today exactly as it was on the day she passed. I hope these photos evoke a sense of nostalgia and give life to how Lauriston would have looked in photos in Mrs. Reid’s day.
Thanks for stopping by friends. If you would like to participate in this week’s challenge, please click here.

Thanks, Darlene. 🙂
Looks beautiful… and perfectly nostalgic!
Thanks! I’m glad the photos came across as I had hoped. 🙂
Beautiful! And I would love to know the story of the saucy wench making bread! 🙂
Haha, she is rather saucy! Your comment made me laugh. 🙂
Great post Wendy, seeing the things as its laid out in 1926 is a great work they have done in preserving the past. The monochrome treatment just takes us back to the past!
Thank you! Preserving it exactly as it was for future generations to enjoy was one of the stipulations the owners made when they gifted the house to Edinburgh. I think that’s amazing!
That’s great thinking from them considering that they made that decision on the present time back then! 👍
What a beautiful spot Wendy. I love the image of those old photos as well as the one looking out the windows. Your post processing really says nostalgia!
Great choice for the nostalgic theme, Wendy!
